November Events
As always, check our events calendar on the regional forum for a complete list of write-ins and other NaNoWriMo events in San Diego.
Like last year, we’re doing our rotating write-ins every Sunday afternoon at iconic locations around the city, starting with Cabrillo National Monument on November 1.

I will be doing the Great Train Escape this year, so if you’re up for a day long write-in while traveling to San Francisco, let me know! It will be on November 13 this year and the tentative schedule is located here. I will post more info in the forums later this month once the details are finalized.

We are also doing our first ever “Meet-in-the-Middle” on November 21. This is an inter-regional write-in between the San Diego and North San Diego County regions. Come and meet some of our neighboring wrimos!

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me (syaffolee) or Nicole (wingedcreature) via NaNoMail. Happy planning and I hope to see some of you at these events!
